Reader comments about this quote:
A thousand stars...
Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats understand this...both are draconian / authoritarian entities that should be vanquished from our society if we are to be a truly free people. Restore the Republic - Abolish the Fed.
 -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    Carlton, very well said. That I could also rate this countless times with innumerable stars. The most selfish religion I can imagine (socialism) completely fulfills and proves this quote. In the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land, the selfish takers out numbered and voted (voter fraud not here considered) selfless producers. An extreme example is, Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin even has American's and others murdered with impunity because they won't comply or submit to his wishes.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    There is no obligation to sacrifice oneself for the good of society -- that is simply self-righteous servitude leading to suicide. This defines the individualist from the collectivist.
